Making Sustainable Business Decisions In Four Different Industries and Their Effect on People (Social), Planet (Environment), and Profit (Economics) part of Activities
The student will gain a better understanding of "Global Warming" and the "Triple Bottom Line" by viewing the first two videos. Further the CEO2 game will introduce many new ideas/options that specific industries have to select from in achieving their desired corporate/company goals.
Using Lab Measurements to Determine the Feasibility of a Photovoltaic Panel part of Integrate:Workshops:Systems, Society, Sustainability and the Geosciences:Activities
Tom Termes, Black Hills State University
Using Lab Measurements to determine the power output of a solar module and the economic feasibility of photovoltaic panels
Water Neutrality Design Charette part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Steven Burian, University of Utah
An exercise to design a water management plan for the University of Utah to achieve water neutrality. Students are expected to work with their disciplinary tools to identify infrastructure needs, environmental impacts, cost, social impacts, and more.
Simulating Mineral Industry Drilling and Processing Lab part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Joel Aquino, Gainesville State College
Students simulate two processes applied by the mineral industry - drilling and mineral processing. In the drilling activity, students create a 3D model of a hidden object inside a shoebox by using bamboo skewers as their drilling machines. The second activity on mineral processing challenges the students to design and implement a flowchart on how to separate the individual components of a water-oil laden mineral mixture.
Learning to integrate geophysics into engineering projects using a comprehensive set of interactive, online, scenario-based resources part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Francis Jones, University of British Columbia
This online activity is a four part interactive learning scenario involving application of geophysics in a groundwater contamination and site characterization setting. Learning objectives focus on decision making about designing, interpreting and contributing the geophysical components for a complex geologic / geotechnical project.
Air and Water Quality Optimization Related to Open Pit Mining part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Mark Koopman, University of Utah
The module is not sufficiently developed to be summarized.
How to Create a Well Log for Use in Geothermal Bore Field Design part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Kevin Amende, Montana State University-Bozeman
This activity is intended to provide a foundation in soil classification and well log creation for mechanical engineers who would like to design geothermal bore fields. Having an understanding of geoscience allows mechanical engineers to make educated decisions when trying to associate soil thermal properties for these designs.
Finding Soil Material for a Construction Project part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Tej Gautam, Marietta College
For this activity, students will prepare soil maps and data tables. Using 'Web Soil Survey (WSS)', a small area around Marietta City will be chosen and possible sites for acquiring soil as a construction material for an engineering project will be determined.
Assessing Water Resource Demand in New York City part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
Kyle Monahan, Clarkson University
An exercise assessing the water demand of New York City and population dynamics underlying that demand is provided. Visualization of first order water resource estimates using precipitation data and a known water storage volume are used to draw conclusions about drought risk and the sustainability of NYC water supplies.
Evaluating Reuse Opportunities for Recovered Building Materials part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
John Duggan, Wentworth Institute of Technology
Students investigate opportunities to reuse recycled building materials as a substitute for the use of virgin materials through comparative life cycle assessment and consider regulatory acceptance and market feasibility issues.
